Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State deceived his fellow G-5 governors into committing political suicide, Mr. Phrank Shaibu, Special Assistant on Public Communication to the presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has said.

Wike is a prominent figure in the G-5 which also includes Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia and Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo.

Ortom, Ugwuanyi and Ikpeazu lost their Senate bids in the February 25 presidential and National Assembly election.

Reacting, Shaibu said betrayal, hypocrisy and deception were part of Wike and that was why he had lost relevance outside Rivers “and had become nothing but a bull in a China shop”.

He was responding to a statement by the Rivers government in which it asked Atiku to “caution his attack dogs”.

Shaibu said Wike lacks decorum and is not in any position to advise anyone to be decorous.

“Governor Wike was nominated as minister by Governor Rotimi Amaechi. He got there and betrayed Amaechi and continues to insult him on a daily basis. In 2017 he tried to take over the soul of PDP by insisting that Prince Uche Secondus should be national chairman but he soon fought with Prince Secondus and orchestrated his removal because of his desperation to be President.

“As governor he constantly undermined his colleagues notably Governors Ben Ayade (Cross River), Dave Umahi (Ebonyi) and Godwin Obaseki (Edo). Ayade and Umahi eventually left out of frustration. Even Peter Obi left due to the constant insults from Wike who battled with him over the structure of the PDP in Anambra State.

“In 2021 Governor Wike wanted Senator Iyorchia Ayu to hand him the Presidential ticket but when this didn’t work, he tried to remove Ayu as well. In his most recent act of desperation, he deceived four of his colleague governors to reject the PDP thereby pushing them into political suicide,” he said.

Shaibu berated Wike for saying he opposed Atiku’s candidacy for altruistic reasons and for the sake of Nigeria’s unity.

He said Wike is known to be a self-centred person.

“Governor Wike’s claim that he opposed Atiku for the sake of fairness is like a prostitute claiming to be in business in order to feed the poor. No one believes his lies anymore including those he pays to attend his sponsored events where he entertains them with horrible dance steps.

“Wike invited Peter Obi to Port Harcourt under the guise of commissioning projects only for him to work against the same Obi and then goes around to call Obi the hero of the election. This is obviously a shameless man who takes Nigerians for fools.

“Wike is a snake and that is why even after helping Tinubu to a dubious victory in Rivers State, even Tinubu cannot invite him to the dinner table because a snake is not the kind of animal you can invite into your home. Such animals cannot be domesticated,” he said.

He stated that Wike would not be able to escape justice no matter how much he runs.
